Preveli Monastery - Kato Moni Preveli, Crete Island: 7 reviews and 13 photos
The quite extensive ruins of the former Preveli Monastery are spectacularly located in a beautiful , peaceful landscape.
The road there was pretty abysmal but the scenery compensated for the dusty, bumpy ride.
Lots of different rooms to explore, some, the floors had disintergrated and roofs had all but gone. A little church remained remarkably intact.
We saw evidence of the "hermit" living here, a rough bed laid out and a fireplace in use.
The views are exceptional and we loved the place.
This was in 1992 so I've no idea what the road or the place is like now.
Directions: 3 km. inland of Piso Moni Preveli, 34 km from Rethymnon.
